Description Sowing More Info Delivery
The remarkable variegated foliage of this lovely, bushy perennial makes this Ox Eye an attractive border plant even when it's not in flower! Flowering in the first year from an early sowing, Heliopsis helianthoides var. scabra 'Sunburst' will be covered with cheery, bright yellow daisy-like flowers summer to autumn, which are excellent for cutting. This superb False Sunflower is 90% true to type but you should expect to spot some non-variegated seedlings. These can be discarded at an early stage or grown on for a contrasting clump in the border. Height: 70cm (28"). Spread: 60cm (24").

Sowing Months Flowering Months
Feed and water Heliopsis regularly, particularly during dry periods until fully established. Heliopsis flower stems may require staking in early summer for support. Heliopsis set seed readily. Deadhead the faded Heliopsis flowers regularly if seedlings are not required.

Sow Heliopsis seed from February to June on the surface of a good seed compost, and cover with a light sprinkling of compost of vermiculite. Place in a propagator at a temperature of 18-25C (64-77F) or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag until after germination, which usually takes up to 30 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on in cooler conditions. When Heliopsis plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, gradually acclimatise them to outdoor conditions for 10-15 days before planting outdoors. Grow Heliopsis plants at a distance of 45cm (18") apart in full sun in rich, fertile, reliably moist, well drained soil.
